axels and spindle swap

hello, i have always did some kinda swap for cars, but this one im trying aint going know where but adding scrap parts. i know there is a way to swap my axles from my 87 tbird turbo. i want the 5 lug patteren and i tried the 02 mustang axles which are to long. right spline tho. spindles control arms"tie rod". does not have the right degree bend and don't allow my wheels to turn.tried 84 parts from a fair mont. not good there.. what am i missing here, dont want to take the pos traction out to set another rear end under it. any one help..

much less pain to have your axles/drums drilled for five bolt and exchange just the front hubs, not the spindles. Ford has a good bearing interchange and hubs can be swapped with just the correct bearings/

what about using the ones from a 90 bird ,they are 5 lugs I know the old ladies 91 couger across the street has 5 but I don't know if they'll interchange. I may be wrong but I think the 6cyl birds have the 4 lugs and the 8cyl have the 5 lugs
